The One Beach In South Carolina Where You Can Drive Right Up To The Water

Native South Carolinians know if you want to drive out onto – and then park your car upon – the beach, you’re out of luck. In the era of the iconic 1930s Old Folly Beach Pavilion, beach driving and parking were allowed. But those laws changed long, long ago.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
